"The Jerusalem statement from almost 1200 confessing Anglican leaders urged the Archbishops of Nigeria, Kenya, Southern Cone, Tanzania, Uganda, West Africa and Rwanda to recognise a new Anglican province for North America.
'This has now become more urgent due to the aggressive illiberal and unprincipled behaviour of The Episcopal Church House of Bishops towards the Bishop of Pittsburgh who is currently moderator of the orthodox Common Cause Partnership.
'The behaviour of The Episcopal Church House of Bishops shows that the promised moratorium at Lambeth is dead and their integrity in wishing to bring peace must now be questioned.'
